The insulation on the wiring for my fuel pump has cracked in various places. It still works ok but needs replacing. The only question I have is what to replace it with. Is normal insulated wire fuel proof? or is there something better?

This subject shows now and then here, the conclusion earlier have been silicone insulated wire have the best resistance to fuel.

Sorry, after a further check it seems that I don't remember that good.
Nitrile, Teflon or Viton is a better material, silicone is not recommended.
The fuel hoses inside the tank is made of nitrile.

Teflon is the best, and in my experience, a lot easier to find.
